, which includes the allocation of the public education enrichment fund and then the budget also included the rainy day reserve appropriation to the schools. and just to note that the school district has been really very cooperative and helpful and diligent in establishing performance measures so that we can see what the success has been from the funds. and again, we will conduct an analysis beginning next year to review the good work that the school has done. supervisor mar: can i ask you the process for the roughly $40 million deferred funds that i feel is an obligation to pay to the school district and looks like in projections it's going to be close to $62 million by 20 15 -- 2015. can you talk about what's the process to pay that deferred amount to the school district? >> if the program is not renewed, that is if either the city chooses not to put it on the ballot or if it's put blonlt and fails, then we are required to pay that back within two years. after the end of the program. if the program is renewed, this deferral could essentially continue for the life of the program

, getting an education -- [applause] >> i guess the question is of fairness. you shouldn't have two systems, one where based on your race or class you can access treatment and move on with your life and another one where because of law enforcement tactics and focus, you end up caught up in a system where you can never move on. you're permanently trapped and weighed down by having a felony conviction. the reason i call it a war on crumbs is the type of people we see at the hall of justice, i brought with me some props. i brought with me a sweetener packet. this is a gram of sweetener. most of the time this is on the high end of the amount of narcotics we see people in possession of. sometimes people have two or three sweetener packages on them and we call them drug dealers, you know. that's why we call it a war on crumbs because the amounts we are talking about are mine us schedule. -- minnesota us schedule. the fact -- are miniscule. and based on less than a packet of sweetener, to me is outrageous. and to me this is a positive first step, in my opinion, because at least you remove

education, i would say there is not one answer. the answer is that there is not an answer. you have brought about by bringing this conversation forum. it is not just law enforcement perspective, it is not just the community-based perspective, it is not just the research perspective, it is a multi- layered approach. first and foremost, we do have to consider meeting youth where they are act. we are talking about perpetrators of violence or what not or system involved or involved in gangs, we have to meet them where they are at. pain and hurt produces more hurt, right? what is fundamental it is addressing back pain -- addressing that pain. not looking at folks in a punitive way and saying, this guy is notorious, we have to lock him up. that person is hurting. he might have been abused, you know. first and foremost, we need to meet that individual's needs. i am pursuing a master's in social work. i have that lens. we need to heal our communities and take those answers upon ourselves. everybody has already -- we sure this in perspective, but definitely, we need to create community ancho
